Lockheed Martin has test-fired its long-range Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) for the second time at the US Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, US.

All objectives were achieved in the test following the inaugural flight of the missile conducted in December last year.

The company tested the next-generation missile PrSM from its High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launcher and flew a nominal trajectory approximately 180km to the target area.

Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Precision Fires and Combat Maneuver Systems vice-president Gaylia Campbell said: “Today’s flight test further demonstrated the reliability, precision and critical capabilities Lockheed Martin is building into the PrSM.

“The missile performed exactly as expected and successfully engaged the target with pinpoint accuracy.”

The missile test-firing was aimed at confirming its flight trajectory, range and accuracy from launch to warhead event, as well as warhead lethality, HIMARS launcher integration and overall missile performance.

The PrSM is a next-generation precision-strike, surface-to-surface weapon system and will deliver improved capabilities to attack, neutralise, suppress and destroy targets at depth on the battlefield.

Additionally, it gives field artillery units a new long-range capability and will support brigade, division, corps, army, theatre, joint and coalition forces.

Campbell further added: “This second consecutive successful flight test of Lockheed Martin’s PrSM validates our missile technology and confidence that Lockheed Martin is uniquely positioned to deliver this important, cost-effective capability to meet our US Army customer’s priorities.”

The PrSM missile contains an insensitive munition (IM) propulsion system and IM energetic payload and also features an open systems architecture design for maximum affordability and flexibility.
